Kristin Jones


Kristin wants to live in a place where it's not too hot and not too cold, where knitwear is always in season, and where a new project on the needles is never far from hand, combining simplicity and elegance with feminine and modern pieces.

Fun Fact

I've always loved vintage clothing, and I try to incorporate elements of fun into each piece I design.

Knitting Tip

Get comfortable with frogging. The fastest way to learn is by making (and trying to fix) a mistake, and then having to start over. Plus, you'll never be afraid to try a new project or new technique!
